Join us in the summer of 2015, as we explore the rich culture, diverse landscape, and powerful history of Spain.
This unique country located in the southwest of Europe offers a mixture of old world charm and modern wonder. Spanish culture boasts welcoming people, a beautiful language, delicious cuisine, exciting festivals, captivating art, and interesting folklore. Enjoy Spain while running with the bulls in Pamplona or dancing to Flamenco music in cafes at night. Admire the innovative work of inspirational artists such as Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí.
The diverse landscape of Spain is ready for exploration from the snow-capped Pyrenees Mountains to the arid plains of Andalucía. Serenity is easy to achieve while cruising through the beautiful cliffs of Spain’s Atlantic northwest or lounging on the beaches of the Mediterranean. Reminiscences of Old Spain are visible while venturing through the timeless hilltop villages, historical cities, and viewing the grand architecture.
